NEW YORK, Dec. 4-AP)--Joe1
Louis will fight in Madison Square
Garden tomorrow night, and be-
cause the great heavyweight
champion never has given other
than an honest, thrilling exhibi-
tion of the manly art, he is virtu-
alry certain to draw the biggest
gate in the history of the famous
arena.
Receipts today indicated that
more than 18,000 will watch Louis
make the 24th defense of his title
against Jersey Joe Walcott, an un-I
distinguished Negro veteran who
is not expected by the betting fra-
ternity to last more than four of
the scheduled 15 rounds.I
Well, suppose Jersey Joe Wal-
cott does defeat Joe Louis. He
won't, of course, barring an un-
foreseen accident, such as the
Bomber slipping and breaking
a leg.

one thing, we think the fight
would see the darndest scrambk
among heavyweights for a shot at
the title that anyone ever saw. It
would make the argument for first
place after Gene 'Iunney retired
seem like a conversation about the
weather.
Right now there are no logical
opponents for Louis' title. But if
he abruptly should lose that title,
the place would be swarming with
aspirants. They'd ooze out of the
woodwork, come out from under
rocks, jump from behind trees.
There'd be a million of them.
T ie fact is that, with scant
cxc ptiens, such as Jersey Jae,
nobody wants to climb into the
1Vr with the champion. He's so
much in a class by himself that
only the lure of fat dollars will
rmake a man brave the dynamite

the past five weeks is that he is
just about as terrifying a man in-,
side the ropes ashe ever was. The
critics have eyed the big, brown
fighter very closely, figuring that
at 33 he should begin to show
some signs of slipping. Quite
frankly, he has them baffled.

DAILY
OFFICIAL
BULLETIN

By ROGER GOELZ
(EDITOR'S NOTE: First in a series
of articles surveying the Big Nine bas-
hethal teams this season.)
Now that the football season is
over for all of the Western Con-
ference teams with the exception
of Michigan, the emphasis has
shifted to basketball and is pre-
season forecasts are to be taken as
a measure, the followers of the
Big Nine are in for one of the
closest conference races in recent
years.
Already, the Associated Press is
a preliminary survey of the Big
Nine coaching staffs has an-
nounced that Michigan and Min-
nesota are voted the honor of be-
ing the two teams most likely to
dethrone Wisconsin for the con-
ference crown. The Badgers, while
they are not given the nod for the
title, are rated as a team that can
ruin the chances of all its Big
Nine Opponnts.
Badgers' Lasses Costly
Wisconsin's coach, "Bud" Fos-
ter and his assistant Fred Wegner,
have their work cut out for them
in building a team to defend the
Badgers Big Nine title. While
graduation losses at Madison
were not heavy they were exacting
in personnel. Glenn Selbo and
Walt Lautenbach, two all-confer-
ence guards and Bob Kreuger
are the main losses that has the
coaching department searching
for capable replacements. Other
Wisconsin losses that seriously
hinder the Badgers' chances for
repeating as champions of the
Conference are forward Exner
Menzel, guard Fred Engel and for-
ward Doug Holcomb.
Coach Foster has as a core for
his 1947 team, Conference scoring
ace Bob Cook who led the Big
nine with 187 points, centers Ed
Mills, Bob Haarlow and Don Reh-
feldt, all of whom saw action last
season, and reserve forwards Dick
Falls, Larry Pokrzywinski and
Fred Schneider.
Seven Lettermen Back
Minnesota, finishing fourth in
the Conference last year with a
7-5 record is pointing for the Big
Nine title this season and its
hopes are based on the fact that
seven lettermen are returning
from last year's squad. The cali-
bre of material at Minnesota is
so much improved that six of the
so-called "wartime" lettermen are
expected to have a hard time in
their fight to retain starting posi-
tions in the Gopher lineup.
Coach Dave MacMillan is also
highly pleased with the prospects

The Splits and the Strikers
moved into first place tie with the
Turkeys in the All-Campus Bowl-
ing League Wednesday night
when the Wild Men shut out the
league-leading gobblers 4 to 0.
Led by Bob Fancett, the Strik-
ers had no trouble disposing of
the Phi Kappa Taus 4 to 0. Fan-
cett rolled a 619 series and a 214.
game. Although they spotted their
opponents 48 pins a game, the
Splits defeated the Shackers 3 to
1.
Few remaining hockey tickets
for the game against McMaster
University will go on sale at
8:30 a.m. today in the athletic
administration office.

The Turkeys, eri pued by injur-
ies and absente:c,. were an easy
mark for the Wild Men, paced by
Ivan Barris, the latter took full
advantage of the situation to ac-
minister a resounding 4 to 0 de-
feat and move into third place.
The Lawyers, who have taken
their last three matches in a row.
added another when they defeated
the Engineers 4 to 0 and remaineci
tied with the Spares for second
place. Seldom done even by the
professionals, Al Pappas, of the
Lawyers, converted the difficult
4-6-7 split.
The Spares shut out the lowly
Bowl-Hands 4 to 0, and the Dales
did the same to the Gamma Del-
tas.
